Refinishing is the kiss of death for a collector, but to a shooter, it may enhance the value somewhat. Since the model 69A lists at $125 in Poor condition and only $250 in Excellent (according to my not-too-far-out-of-date Standard Catalog), you can't do too much economic damage. I too, have a 69A that i received Christmas 1963. As a collectable, it has very little value. This rifle was not even serial numbered! I am going to have mine restored just because it was soething my late father gave me. So restore away! Jst find a good competent person to do the restoration.
